Greg Norman Excited About Fellow Countrymen on Presidents Cup Team
As many players continue to stake their claim for inclusion on this year's President's Cup team, International team captain Greg Norman is excited that he will be joined by a few familiar faces when competition begins November 17th. Fellow Australians Adam Scott, Jason Day, and Geoff Ogilvy have already qualified to play in the event for the Internationals, according to a Sportal.com article earlier this morning. The three men will bring a great deal of expertise and familiarity to Royal Melbourne this November, hopefully giving their team an edge over what appears to be a strong American opponent. Norman has also had a great deal of success at this particular golf course, which he hopes to share with his team.
"You look at Jason Day, Adam Scott and Geoff Ogilvy, we have the three lynchpins of golfers carrying the Australian flag, so I think it is nice to have that in that department," Norman said.
"As for my experience of Royal Melbourne, I can just tell them (that) I remember every putt. I know where the pin position is going to be. I know how to play the golf course" (sportal.com, 2011).
Norman will also be tasked with choosing his captain picks - or "wildcards" - within the next few days. If he wishes, he can grab fellow countryman Robert Allenby who has also played Royal Melbourne numerous times in his professional career.
